I'm pissed that they (ESPN) is showing the Cavs vs. Bucks instead of this game.:upset:



Nothing like watching two Eastern Conference powers battle it off, while two of the best teams in the league are playing at the same time. I'd much rather see LeBron vs. Michael Redd rather than KG vs. Shaq. :rolleyes:


Freakin ESPN.:upset:

Yea you would think they'd want a good game.. Nothin against those other teams but really.. Who doesnt wanna see Garnett, Kobe, Shaq, Payton, Spree, Cassell, over Bron, Z, Boozer, Redd, Ford, and so on?

I have a feeling the Lakers are gonna take a loss on this one. Cassell will most likely torch us since Shaq isn't in good shape right now and isn't going to step out on the pick and pops.

Actually, surprisingly enough, Shaq was stepping out and helping on the screens in his first game back from injury against the Sonics on Wednesday. Maybe it's a trend! :)

ok, i am joining you guys about this talk because unfortanatly, i feel like im talkin to myself on the wolves' boards.


ok, bad enough for the wolves, troy hudson is probable for this game, getting injured on the same ankle that kept him out for most of the season, so the wolves just resently signed pg darrick martin!!!:rolleyes: yea right......... the wolves keep losing depth and right now, the lakers will play them the weakest they have been all season......


i think shaq is gong to have...... 35 points today

I don't think Shaq will be given that many minutes tonight. he played 18 the other night against Seattle. Phil said the other day about 25 - 30 is likely for tonight.

Even without Kobe (and Malone...) we should be able to stop the Wolves in Staples...

I predict a 6 pts victory.

Shaq: 25 pts in 25 mnts;
Payton: 20 pts and 15 asts;
Medvedenko: 25 pts and 11 rbds.
:gopray:

We'd win with Kobe, but I don't think we'll win without him. Shaq will have to have 30 and 15 and everyone else will have to do their thing for it to happen.

Cassell will outplay Payton

Sprewell will outplay Deveon

Garnett will outplay a hurt Shaq

Wolves should win this one, theres no excuse to lose...

And if the Lakers somehow manage to win this game, don't reply saying Minny gave the Lakers the game ;)

Shaq is honestly just a waste of space out there right now. He looks like he's forgot how to play basketball.

I have a new prediction

Cassell will go 3 for 30, and the T Wolves will end up with 40 points in the game... 9 points in the second quarter so far?! My GOD!!! Thats DISPICIBLE! The Hawks played better than this!!

Good Lord! Finally Shaq is looking like a basketball player again and no one is giving him the ball! Our defense on Cassell and Sprewell is absolutely pathetic. We are going for ***** pumpfakes and they're getting wide open.

We couldn't throw a penny into the ocean right now.:(
